    Nobody listens to Fox Fake news except a couple million right wing kooks–

    Except during the Boston bombings and then Fox was far more believed then even CNN.

    Back to the basement Jr., grownups talking here.

    Stan t. – so you used to be a Dem, but voted republican more often, because you had standards. Well, I’ve never voted for a republican. As a lifelong Dem, don’t doubt me. I know democrat party politics inside and out, like the back of my hand. As a matter of fact, in 2008, ans 2012, I won the “office pool” bets, both times. So there, HA!

    GO USA 8888

    MSNBC=My Sucky News Broadcast Channel Leam Forward and land flat on your face.
    Hillary couldnt beat Obama in the primary. Go ahead and put her up front. It will make 2016 real easy to put a Republican back in office. She is toast when the truth will be told about how should couldnt handle the State Department. Just because she flew a million miles doesnt make her qualified. The world is a mess right now thanks to the 3 Musketeers. Obama, Susan Rice and Hillary Rodman Clinton.

    88888…you are always say the Republicanws have been blocking your Obama from make the economy right. What happened when the Dumb A%$ Dems had all 3 branches? They passed the train wreck Obama Care. I am glad his name is stuck to it. The Bush Tax cuts are gone. It is all Obama`s from here on out. No one to blame but the Dems.

    Lean Forward until you hit the floor with your faceand get a carpet burn on the nose!

    The office pool bets were at our election precint.

    Poor USA

    Obama’s number has been at 50 for a couple of days….

    But seemingly there is another 50% that just isn’t into Obama.

    In the days to follow..I suspect Obama will drop in the polls…

  • Chriscee

    Keep digging USA…the further you dig…the deeper you crawl into that hole…

    Whistle-blower: Special Forces Rescue Team Ordered to ‘Stand Down’ During Benghazi Raid

    Amazing…..both Obama and Hillary just let 4 Americans DIE. mere “bumps in the road” to them both…

  • Chriscee

    I feel very THREATENED that Obama is the president. The entire country should be feeling threatened as well.

    As long as Obama is president….we’ll never be safe.

    What I find so facinating, as there is more pressure to regulate fire arms there are more places to get them. There are 3 gun stores within a 10 mile radius where I live in upstate ny, two years ago there were none. Interesting yes?
